New York City Mayor-Elect Bill de Blasio has named William J. Bratton as the next New York City Police Commissioner.

“Bill Bratton is a proven crime-fighter,” de Blasio said Thursday. “He knows what it takes to keep a city safe, and make communities full partners in the mission.”

Bratton previously served as NYPD Commissioner from 1994-1996 under then-NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, ushering in an era where crime rates fell dramatically in New York City.

Bratton will succeed Ray Kelly, who has served as Commissioner since 2002, the longest tenure in New York City’s history.
